Social Media in Plain English

Now that I am working closely with several people in my local area in teaching businesses the power of social media, I am constantly on the hunt for new, innovative ways to explain why they should be involved in networks like Twitter and Facebook, etc...

This is one of the best examples I have ever found as to why social media exists, why it works, and why so many are turning towards it to help build their businesses!!

I'm always amazed at the negativity I encounter re social media, but many times I see that it is the fear (many times of WORK!) aspect. Love Common Craft!

Clint, Thanks for bringing us that. I hadn't heard of Common Craft before but I love the simple, non complicated way they presented it. They make using social media a no-brainer. Great stuff!!!

It is simple we sometime make it much more difficult than it has to be.

Great post.  Elegantly simple...monumentally plain.  Just like vanilla.  I think this just about sums up what we are all trying to accomplish with our "new" marketing techniques.

Thanks for simplifying! Even if you know social media you've broken it down in a way that's easy to pass on to those who aren't as comfortable online.
